.w. bush out and about and governor chris christie hits back against all the fat jokes made at his expense. very good morning to you. it's nice to see you. >>> before you head out this morning, you might want to pad your wallet. gas prices are up again. aaa puts the average price for a gallon of regular at $3.52. that is the highest average ever for the month of february. the cost up is 17 cents from just last week. drivers in states like new york and california are feeling the pinch more than others. prices there approaching $4 a gallon. that is making for extra pain at the pump. >> these higher gas prices definitely affect the way i budget my money, where i choose to live, and how i choose to spend my leisurely time. >> i'm more conscious about the distance i'm driving. >> a dollar decline in the number of oil refineries have been blamed for the increase. 2013 will be less brutal on 2012 where average household spent $3,000 on gas. >>> thanks to a fbi rescue, the little boy that was the hostage of an alleged murder is safe and sound this morning. >> i've been to the hospital. i have visi
. and pretty decent approval ratings, chris christie, post superstorm sandy and everything he's done. he's a jovial kind of guy. he pops up on "the late show" with david letterman last night. let's play the part with the doughnut. >> welcome to the show. >> thrilled to be here. >> now, you, how do you feel about me? >> i love you, dave. >> no, but -- >> no, a love that i have a difficult time really explaining. a deep and abiding love. >> now we have a real problem. but i've made jokes about you, not just one or two, not just ongoing here and there, intermittent, but -- >> i mean, listen, sunny hostin, the governor has a sense of humor. >> i absolutely adored what chris christie did on "the letterman show." you have to do that with david letterman. he will eviscerate you otherwise. i think what it showed is someone who can take control of the issue, because everyone knows he has a weight issue, and someone that is saying to the world, yeah, i'm overweight, and i can take it. i can take the jokes. it is fair game. and i've got to tell you, i think he's in a terrific position, again, to op
of david letterman's jokes. i interviewed chris christie for my book coming up in may very seriously about his weight and about how much those jokes hurt him. i guess he felt he had to do that to sort of, you know, break the ice with letterman. >> what do you mean those jokes hurt him? >> they hurt his feelings. >> i want to see another clip and see how hurt he is? he handles it very well. >> do you have family members who are also heavy? >> no. i'm the guy. >> you are the guy. >> i'm the guy. >> how is your health sxwlmpt if you went to a doctor today, what would the doctor say? >> startlingly good. >> how is your cholesterol? >> my cholesterol is normal, believe it or not. >> that's pretty good. >> what about your blood sugar? >> blood sugar, also normal. i'm basically the healthiest fat guy you've ever seen in your life. crazy. >> there's your campaign poster right there. >> it's good stuff. >> well done. >> so you're saying it's like the tears? >> tears of a clown. >> no, stop it. my god, i can't believe you. no, he's addressing obviously an issue everybody jokes about with him but it'
more on how that might change the state. >> yeah, basically, christie said if it had a few changes, he would support it. christie wants a ten-year trial period, so it can be reviewed. he also wants internet gambling revenues packed at a 15% rate as opposed to the currently proposed 10%. he wanted more money devoted to helping those with addictions. if the amendments are made and the legislation is passed and both things are expected, new jersey becomes the third state to move forward with legal online gambling. nevada, which is only poker, and delaware, are the others. all three probably should start the practice later in the year. in a statement to the state assembly, christie wrote, since the beginning of my administration i have stressed the importance of reversing the trend of economic contraction in atlantic city. atlantic city is the key word here. according to wells fargo, this could mean up to $850 million in a year in revenue. right now, the bill would be just for people living in the state to be able to gamble online. other states with legal online gambling could utilize the
of artists. at the christie's sale, that particular picture that was bought for $7 million which was bought six years ago for $18 million. >> is this the season? >> this is the london season. it's a bit like old fashioned so school. this week has been the impressionist week. next week is another london show of contemporary art and the next big show is going to be may in new york when a few more billion dollars will come up for sale and then it shifts on to october and then back into london. >> wow. chinese. >> the chinese are absolutely fascinated by this market. and we're seeing the growth of china -- if you look back ten years, china represent about five years of the buying in the art market. it's now 30%. it's overtaken the u.s. >> wow. >> thank you. >> phillip hoffman, the fine group, thank you so much for coming by. we'll bring you the results of that auction next week on wex. >>> do you think it's fair athletes get special tax breaks? this is so usain bolt can compete in the uk. keep your comments coming. e-mail us, cnbc@cnbc.com. >>> welcome back to "worldwide exchange." more than 50
, bwin.com, there's talks about new jersey governor chris christie opening up online gaming. it leaves the possibility out there for atlantic city casinos to offer games like poker online. so bwin has a join venture with boyd gaming which is licensed in new jersey. and the view among analysts is that other states, potentially federal legislation could follow suit. this is a small step in the direction of perhaps allowing more and more of the u.s. market to gamble online, like you can already with this one. up 19%. watch shares generally speaking in the gaming session today because you can expect there will probably be some similar moves. just the final word, we saw the yen strengthening avenue the yen appeared to talk down some of its easing moves. the yen was still 1% stronger. the nikkei ended the day 12-day winning streak with one of its longest. back over to you. >> thank you, kelly evans. we will see you a monday. yesterday, we talked to former treasury secretary robert rubin about creating confidence in the markets and the economy. business really needs to better understand the v
, joining us is christi crihristian wetherbee. what does this move mean for that company? >> i think ultimately it is about the mail on saturday. that's not really a market that fedex or ups competes in. it carries first class mail, ups on percentage basis, probably carries more relative to their total usps business. but i think ultimately, keeping packages, keeping package service on saturday is a little bit more impactful. if that were to have gone away, there could have been more volume flowing towards fedex or ups. >> which of these two stocks do you prefer at their current prices? >> at current prices we prefer fedex. we have a buy on fedex, we have a neutral on ups. we do have the strong benefiting both players. fedex has profit improvement plan under way with meaningful cost cuts which should generate better profits in their fiscal '14 which starts in a couple months. sue, down to you. >> take a lock at markets now. holding steady, down side by us since dow jones off about ten points or so on the trading session. steve grasso is with us. good to see you. >> good to see you. >>
but archives. rich demuro, special inspector general for tarp, -- christy romero. she has had prior roles at sigtarp and was also at the u.s. securities and exchange commission who -- and served as counsel to mary schapiro and christopher cox. and investigative financial fraud, insider trading and other violations of securities law. she spent time as a litigator. her jd is from brigham young law school and she went to school here, old dominion university. the special inspector general from tarp and a recent report. treasury continues approving excessive -- excessive pay. on twitter -- is this all hindsight? guest: it is interesting. one of the things we constantly report on is things that should have been done better. you have to respect that a lot of decisions were made with a sense of urgency. but the compensation decisions were not. there was plenty of time to set up a good system for that. and even for the discount -- for the decisions that were made in a rush, it is really important we point out how things could have been done better. let's say we get and the situation where there is
people who love gun control. chris christie and joe biden, who both love to have gaffes and speak the truth, running against each other, and those debates, people would actually want to watch. >> i want to throw one thing out about. cornell said this is about voting for democrats that might be a good national political issue. here's the problem. california has universal background checks. there are a number of states that have these provisions in place. let's consider a what they've done, how cost effective and effective they are relative to hiring more police officers. the truth is that we're going for solutions that aren't necessarily very effective but they might work as a political issue so that's why we pursue them. >> fair point. six of the 55 senate democrats have indicated they have a problem with the assault weapons ban. you may not get that because there are democrats who support guns too. obviously not as many. all yaw need is a few. >>> an islamist vigilante group harassing women in short skirts and ordering gays off the street. in london. >>> hawaii declares war on th

christy veins, sean smith, tyler woods and glen dougherty. deaths i believe could have been prevented. what has become clear is that the united states is woefully unprepared for what occurred in benghazi. what is also clear is that following the attack, the administration provided the american people inaccurate information about the true nature of the catastrophe and those events in benghazi in my discussions with the most senior administrative officials, i've been told that on the night of the tragedy, although there was confusion about the nature of the first attack on the compound, where the ambassador was located, the second wave of attacks, on the annex, were unequivocally a terrorist attack. i have no doubt about that, that they were. this was apparent because of an angry mob doesn't use coordinated mortars and rpgs. so i have no question about that in my mind, despite the clear evidence, it took this administration over a week to publicly admit, as many of us knew already, that it was a terrorist attack, not simply a protest that turned violent as ambassador susan rice adamantl
